The mSchools Student Awards contest and ceremony acknowledge and celebrate students and teachers for their accomplishments during the mSchools programme. The credibility of the mSchools Student Awards has been built on an extensive panel of experts and professionals in education and mobile technologies. The awards take into account creativity, coherence and technical development.
This year, we celebrated the 5th edition on 9 June in Barcelona, hosting 580 contestants, 118 finalist teams and over 2,000 attendees!
Students and teachers competed with projects based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainability, biodiversity, gender equality, applied mathematics in the city, literature or sexual education were the most important themes among the projects created by young developers.
The jury was attended by Mats Granryd, CEO of GSMA, John Hoffman, CEO and director of GSMA, Ltd and Carlos Grau, CEO of Mobile World Capital Barcelona, with the presence of the Ministers of Education and Digital Policy of Catalonia, among other professionals and experts in the technology sector.
